"Tracy and the driver met us at the train station and we set off to see Suzhou. She was an excellent guide and flexible regarding our interests. She took us to Tiger Hill and the Humble Administrator's Garden. Her knowledge appeared excellent and she was quite willing to answer questions, We also decided, last minute, to take a leisurely "gondola" ride. She accompanied us to the hotel and ensured we were checked-in before she departed. The booking process with Viator was pretty smooth and they were excellent communicators. Even though we had a minor "glitch," they worked to correct the issue to my satisfaction - which they diid! I will use them again.

Private Custom Tour: 2-Day Suzhou City Highlights Tour
"Revisiting Suzhou after many years. Wanted a comprehensive tour of the main sightseeing spots in the city. This trip turned out to meet all my requirements. My guide Anita was well informed and an excellent tour guide. She was pleasant and kept me well informed of the itinerary at the start of both days updating it as we went along. She was efficient and sensitive to my needs as a single traveller ensuring time was well spent and not wasted on things I did not have an interest in. The 2 day tour itself was not rushed with more than adequate time available for visiting the various elements of the itinerary. Lunch was not included but Anita (and the Driver) were able to recommend excellent local restaurants and food for a foreign traveller. The drivers were considerate helpful and most of all gave confidence in their driving ability in a somewhat busy city. All in all an excellent choice to see the city in an unhurried but comprehensive way."..."
